Abby's Eyes
I am so thrilled with the results. Abby's eyes were extremely red and the pupils were glazed over before I started the eye drops. Although I know her eyes will not be perfect, the redness is gone and the white glaze has reduced considerably. She's a trouper about taking the drops. They do not seem to sting or bother her. We're both happier!

Great Product
My husband and I have a Cocker Spaniel that was diagnosed with Glaucoma a few years ago. The vet put him on these drops, once per day in each eye. Since we've been using these drops, my dog has not had any issues in his eyes. He knows that he gets treats when he lets me do his drops, so I don't have to fight with him every day. I think this is a great product!

Good Product / Shipping not great
My dog Lilly has been using this product for several years due to her cataracts causing swelling. It works good but often I have to put drops in 3 to 4 times a day which can get difficult during the work week. However, these drops are cheaper than the alternative so overall I am satisfied.

Our Bichon-poodle developed cataracts at the age of two. One eye was operated on; the cataract in the other eye had already resorbed and the eye has since been removed. Babs is now six and the vet specialist has prescribed 1 drop of Timolol three times a day to keep the pressure down. It seems to be working, and she is having no problems. However, after reading the other review about a dog receiving only one drop a day I wonder whether our Babs is "over-medicated". I will ask that question of the vet during the next check-up.

After Maggie's surgery for cataracts 1 and 1/2 years ago, her surgeon has gradually reduced the use of Timolol to 1 drop in each eye every night. Within 1 month she had gone almost blind from diabetes and cataracts. She is now almost 11 and doing beautifully.

Give it twice a day still as prescribed. Timolol is relatively weak in comparison to most glaucoma medications, so you will do no harm by continuing on a twice daily schedule.

What is Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Solution?
